Noah Receives an Epic Surprise From Hot Wheels

Noah started the 5th grade (!) this week and earlier this week we went shopping for a new backpack for him. We ended up at Pottery Barn Kids and finding this amazing Hot Wheels backpack. Noah is a huge fan of Hot Wheels and so right away this back pack was a hit. (Note: Pottery Barn Kids isn’t the cheapest option, but their backpacks last FOREVER.)

I shared the above picture on our Facebook and Instagram account and Hot Wheels actually saw it and asked if they could send Noah some things to put in his back pack (which was so kind of them!)

Yesterday the gifts arrived and they really outdid themselves! Check out the video below to see how excited Noah was to receive these amazing gifts. (Also, don’t you just love hearing Noah’s voice in this video as he opens up the package.) 🙂
